House of the Cryptoportico

The peristyle decorated with Mercury, accompanied by a peacock, snakes and foliage leads into a cryptoportico, a large underground corridor with an attractive cradle roof illuminated by small windows. A cave? Definitely not! This is a place for exercise sheltered from the sun and bad weather.
